Carved Amethyst and Diamond Bluebell Flower Brooch
Created in the 1920s-1930s, this flower brooch is composed of amethyst, enamel and diamonds, all mounted in platinum. It is designed as a naturalistic pale violet bellflower of carved fluted amethyst on a round and marquise-cut diamond stem, highlighted by diamond buds and dewdrops, with delicate green enamel fronds and a split seed pearl accent. Combining the arts of hardstone carving and accomplished pave-set diamond and platinum work, this charming blossom brooch unites pleasing contrasts of matte and adamantine textures, white brilliance, and soft pastel hues.

Wild bluebells, which appear in varying tones of purple, pink and blue, are native to North American woods, as well to the forests and meadowlands of Ireland and England. Shade and moisture loving, these showy little flowers bloom as winter comes to an end, making them cheerful signs of early spring.
